Propaganda only works until the truth is revealed

Where there are only lies, propaganda works. Where all the political parties are corrupt, or when all the sources of information are biased, propaganda works. If the truth about world events is hidden, then minds are controlled by propaganda.

The spell is only broken when the truth is known and is proven as fact. After this, the statements of any politician, or the opinions of any news show, have no power against the hard evidence of actual emails, letters, pictures, and videos all explaining undeniable events. In the light of hard evidence, hearts and minds change in an instant.

The first America President, George Washington, once said, “Truth will ultimately prevail, where there is pains to bring it to light.”  If even a single person in this world wants truth fully and above all else, and is willing to go to great pains to reveal it, then indeed the truth will ultimately prevail.

Case in point: right now, only a few fearless men such as Steve Bannon, the unmentionable one called by a single letter, Julian Assange, Ed Snowden, Donald Trump, Sebastian Gorka, and several others are carrying out an operation to expose the whole rotten, corrupt, sick system that has enslaved humanity since before any of us were born. They are doing it only by telling the truth and, as they do, the movement is growing exponentially.

You cannot defeat darkness with different darkness, or illusion with a different illusion, or ideology with another ideology, or one crime with another crime. If you want to defeat evil, you need to want the truth, look at the truth, tell the truth, and do so relentlessly without fear no matter what it is.

When this happens, the corrupt elite and all their institutions of slavery and suffering are exposed. Their fake news is discredited. Their lies have no power over us. Not everyone will be convinced because not everyone believes in honesty. Many will surely attempt to hang on to the old illusions for a time. But, to do so, they will need to rely on crazy conspiracy theories—none of which will explain away or discredit what is obviously real.

The truth has power even when it is unproven and is only a theory. But when it is proven and shown to the world beyond any doubt—and when this is done by people with loving intentions—the truth shall set us free.

I only want the truth

The reason we hide from or deny the truth is to maintain a sense of identity. “Who am I in this world?”—this is perhaps life’s most fundamental question.

To answer this question, we do our best to find out what we agree with. We try to figure out what is good, correct, popular, or cool. We make affiliations, we identify with this movement or that organization, and it seems that we gain that sense of identity.

When we think of identity, we mean something permanent. If you frequently change your mind, others may see you as confused or lost in the world. So, we cling to an idea even long after it has been corrupted and proven as utterly untrue. This is total confusion—embarrassing at best, criminal at worst.

The fundamental error here is false identity—a basic error of the ego. We are not our affiliations, our opinions, our status, our positions in life or anything else. There is a deeper identity within, which might be called love.

By assuming your deeper identity as love, you do the things that love does. Love requires honesty and wanting only truth always—even uncomfortable truth. Love is also kind, helpful, giving, eternal, and has many other characteristics.

The point is, when you claim your divine identity as love, then you have no problem instantly changing your mind about political affiliations, opinions, relationships, or anything else.

Now all loyalty is to truth itself, so you become very honest with yourself and others.

Now you are no longer threatened by changes in the world, by new information, or by anything at all because nothing is more real than love.

Here is what is truly fascinating: only by recognizing your identity as love can you end confusion.

Now you can align with reality, dig into it, talk about it, do something about it or accept it.

Now you become a truth-seeker. No more illusions; rather, a total embrace of the realities of this world and beyond.

What is the cause of sexual perversion and sex crimes?

My answer is simple: sexual repression. Apparently, some people do not have much a sex drive. Most people do. Some do not have crazy fantasies and are not willing to experience something sexually exciting just because it feels good and is fun. Most people do and would.

But the whole world tells us that our sexual needs are bad and wrong. We are instantly punished at the mention of our sexual truths. We are forcefully driven into hiding and secrecy, where the fantasies become ever crazier and the needs ever stronger.

The healthy way to respond to a real sexual need is to enjoy it. You can be open about it with the right people. See if you can find someone who shares that fantasy or need. You can get to know each other. You can establish trust and respect. If you are both turned on, you can easily consent to doing whatever you want to and enjoy it fully.

This healthy attitude about sex never involves manipulation and certainly not prostitution or any other form of exploitation or abuse. You can have fun and try anything. You can find out what something is (or is not) and move on with life without all the obsession. You can get unstuck and free yourself from the frustrations of an unfulfilling sex life. In the process, you might even find true love. At the very least, you will form loving friendships.

Unfortunately, most people respond to sexual repression in an unhealthy way. They hide their deepest fantasies from others. The carnal drive toward human intimacy then becomes pornographic and detached from human relationships. People are objectified only as bodies to be conquered and exploited—not as sacred human beings who deserve love and respect.  

The sexually sick then manipulate people for sex. They may take advantage of their authority over people. They may cross boundaries and commit crimes. They may cheat on spouses and break families. They may use drugs to numb the pain. This is the spiral into madness, which can only end in the tragedy of crisis.

To want wild sex is normal, and there is a healthy response. If you are struggling with sexual repression, obsessed by unfulfilled fantasies, I know it can feel terribly frustrating. This very real part of you seems to make no sense from a rational perspective. You may even hate yourself for it.

But if your sexual needs are real for you, then you can embrace them. If a partner claims to love you, then this person can love everything about you—even this. You can give a partner this same freedom. Whatever turns you on is possible—but it needs to be done in truth and with love.

You cannot use people, but you can enjoy everything with them. Sin is where love is not. You can fulfill your sexual needs, but only in honesty and in truth. No cheating.

How to talk with children about horrific sex crimes and political scandals

As we follow the shocking developments in the dark and corrupt world of politics, media, and big business, sometimes our children hear things. They naturally want to know what is going on. They ask us to tell them because they trust mom and dad above anyone else in the world. How is a parent to respond?

Any healthy, loving relationship needs to be based on honesty. The opposite of honesty is dishonesty. Isn’t dishonesty at the root of the evil deeds and scandals we are discussing? Yet tragically, parents are often less than honest with our children—justifying this by calling the manipulation of the truth “age appropriate” communication.

Our children will eventually find out the truth anyway. When that happens, they will remember our dishonesty and the relationship breaks. No more openness. No more trust. This is how any relationship deteriorates. This is not the way.

Our children do not need us to construct a version of the world that is sugar-coated and detached from reality. What they need is our unconditional love, support, openness, and honesty.

With love as the foundation in a family, children are strong enough to deal with the ugliness of the world. They are bright enough handle their own challenges. They are inspired enough to thrive against all odds. The world will throw them enormous challenges, but our job as parents is to show them what love is and how to love.

Any loving relationship absolutely requires honesty, openness, and unconditional acceptance. When we break this, we break our children. Of course, we do not need to talk about every gruesome detail, but we do need to be completely honest about the fundamental truths regarding false authority, crime, and injustice.

I am not suggesting we should share our hateful rants, scare our children, and leave it at that. Instead, these difficult conversations can be guided by our full faith in the power of love and truth over lies and deception.

Evil thrives in secrecy. If we are going to create a better world for ourselves and our children, we need to be open and honest about everything. We need to shine the light of love on the darkness. We need to teach our children the power of truth and goodness—love, itself—as the only force that always prevails over evil.

In you is all of Heaven. (A Course in Miracles)

We all feel it. The world is in a deep state of darkness. For such a long time, our so-called leaders have been lost in unimaginable sin and error. Their mistakes are so deep, so fundamental, and so shocking that good people cannot bare to look.

They have constructed a hell for themselves in which even their most extravagant excesses are not really enjoyed. To desperately cling to even this, they convince us of their worthiness as leaders just as they lead the world to hell and destruction.  

How can we have taken hell as reality when, all the while, in us is all of Heaven? What do these masters of darkness offer other than suffocating rules, violent threats, disgusting art, and disturbing ideas that pull us away from our natural state of Heaven?

Heaven is not an external reality that comes to you. It is not a place you can enter by leaving where you are and traveling far. Heaven is now and it is in you each time you choose love rather than fear.

“How better could your own mistakes be brought to truth than by your willingness to bring the light of Heaven with you, as you walk beyond the world of darkness into light?” -A Course in Miracles

My loving message to the ruling elite: we don’t want revenge, we want freedom and healing

It is said that, if you can make people afraid, you can control them and get them to do anything. We were supposed to be very afraid of COVID-19—distracted enough by the health risks to surrender our freedom. We were supposed to agree to all sorts of things we would never agree to.

If we were supposed to be terrified by this so-called pandemic, you failed in the execution. A constantly increasing number of people are not afraid of COVID so much as we are afraid of our governments, big tech, and the media. Not only are we afraid of these oppressors of personal liberty, these perpetually dishonest individuals and institutions who have attempted to claim total control over us, we are also being made rather miserable by this whole thing for a very long time now. You’re not making us scared; you’re making us miserable.

Miserable people are not like fearful people. Miserable people start asking questions. We fail to accept the lies. We think clearly. We pause our busy lives to do some research, find the truth, communicate, and come to conclusions.

In the case of our world affairs in 2020, a massive number of us have come to the conclusion that to stay silent is far more dangerous than to speak the truth. This happened in small pockets at first, then in ripples, then in waves, and now it is a large global tidal wave that will flood the world with truth.

The strongest propaganda campaign in history has been executed, but it was done poorly by an elderly, lazy, corrupted, uninspired, immoral and profoundly dishonest elite who, yourselves, are living in crippling fear. Maybe your greatest fear of all is that we are not afraid, that your strategies are failing, and that everything you’ve done in life is about to be known.

If you had taken some time along your life path to pause, reflect, to read some of the world’s truly great works of eternal wisdom, then you would have come to know the true nature of reality. You would have awakened to the fact that everything hidden is ultimately exposed. That everything done without love in your heart is an error and is ultimately powerless. That in the day-to-day conduct of your life, you have caused so much unnecessary suffering for yourselves and so many people—and for no good reason.

Even still, if you atone, surrender to truth, come to God through one of the various paths, find out what ego is and what love is, apologize, and make right—then what you cannot possibly imagine is that we are capable of forgiveness.

You cannot hide. To move forward, you need to start being honest or your private hell will only escalate. This is not me saying this—I have no power of my own. I’m just sharing what I’ve learned about the nature of reality, which has been understood by profits, sages, and enlightened people through the ages.

You have underestimated the intelligence and bravery of regular people. But now you underestimate our capacity for forgiveness and understanding. You might hate yourself so much for what you have done, but there is a way out from this and it is only by telling the whole truth—about exactly what you’ve done, how it made you feel, and how wrong you know it is. Healing is only possible through truth and forgiveness.

I’ll speak for myself, but I believe others feel the same way. We don’t want revenge and we don’t want anyone to suffer unnecessarily—not even you. We care about you and about your healing as well as ours. There is a way forward.

A reason for optimism: the coming together of conservatives, new-agers, Trump supporters, and all truth-seekers

We can learn a lot from politics—what corrupt politicians and scandals teach us about life

We all know that the political realm is a swamp of lies. But even there—buried so deeply that it goes almost unseen—the truth about any situation, and the honest truth-tellers who reveal it, also do exist. For every scandalous political accusation, there is either a truth about what the politician did or there is a smear campaign. Only one can be true.

The Achilles heal of any politician or political party is the belief that well-crafted, well-planned lies are as good as the truth. The same goes for the politically motivated media and their endless smears. Only a fool can believe that a lie, if backed by the right motives and intentions, can be noble and is as good as honesty. Only a person who does not know reality, and believes it possible to craft his own version of it, can fall for this very common trap.

This is the fundamental error of ego: the belief that events can be manipulated in your favor, that secrets can be kept, that attack has power, that everything is relative—lies, truth, it is only a matter of who is more skillful and who wants it more. This game always seems to work for a while when everyone is playing along, when everyone is engaged in the same sleazy behavior. But if one person comes along who is willing to risk everything to tell the truth, then the truth-teller wins every time.

All real power is found in honesty—for only it is real. There is a truth to any situation. When the truth is pointed to, no further debate is required because it is easily recognized. Liars then become impotent. They can deny it, they can attack back, they can ignore it, but the truth is always there. Just as light always ends darkness, the truth always ends fiction.

Why do so many seemingly intelligent people attempt to manipulate reality through less than honest means? If you are right about something, then stand up and tell your truth. If the people agree, we will trust you completely and follow. But there is never a good or worthy cause that would require you to lie about anything. To do so is to, in time, destroy yourself and your own cause. This is the life lesson we can all learn.

So many good ideas and causes are being destroyed now by dishonest people with good intentions but no wisdom. But this isn’t true either, because if any cause is real—if it is true—then a decent person will eventually step up to light the way. Only then will the idea gain momentum. It will be carried forward by many with love in their hearts, and it will endure forever.

I don’t want to name names right now because, in the midst of this global coup, there are far too many. But this is my message to any politician or political activist who has ever been tempted to lie about anything: reality ensures your immediate and ongoing suffering, even if you seem to win a battle or find yourself living in some immaculate mansion. Furthermore, reality ensures that the whole thing will eventually be exposed to all. When this happens, which it will, your life’s work will be seen as an utter failure. Did you really think you had the power of God to shape reality?

A beautiful conversation with a friend on the meaning of existence

I wanted to share an interesting conversation with a friend of mine. This was the conversation that flowed from yesterday's post:

Anonymous: The Constitution was created to give us the best chance of maintaining those freedoms we enjoy in peace from the government. Unfortunately, people have their ego/pride and gain selfish desires, wanting to limit other's freedoms so they can become more powerful. Usually it's a small group and the majority will stop them.

But if the majority of the people are wicked, then they are "ripe with iniquity" and they will willingly give away their freedoms for things that are carnal, dark, and meaningless in this world.

Me: It is always a question of how long hell on earth lasts  based upon the majority of people as you say, but time in eternity is meaningless.

Anonymous: This life will be but a blink in the eternities.
Which is interesting to say.
Why do you think this life is important? Or is it?

Me: It isn't, of course. Only eternity is, right?

Anonymous: Hmmm then why are we here?

Me: To learn and acquire experiences in this beautiful world of form. Every gain in consciousness is absorbed by the one consciousness. But consciousness is already complete, no? Apparently not, because without form nothing would happen and therefore nothing could be new. But life must include newness, and newness is life.

Anonymous: Hmm I am trying to understand this more. Does this cycle repeat until everything that can be learned or experienced comes to pass and then the consciousness is complete?
Why is form important?

Me: Consciousness is perfect stillness, being, God. I believe it is in the dimension of nothing. The spirit is invisible, love is invisible, life itself...or the force of life is imperceptible. All this is safe, beyond threat, because it is in the empty space. You can't attack it or swing at it...well, if you do, you won't change it.

But if that were all there was, nothing would happen, nothing more could be learned, it would just be being. But there is something about this dimension of the "unmanifested" that it needs to manifest.

From nothing comes something. But that consciousness is also within every "thing" that exists...in the 99.999% empty space within all matter...between the atom's walls and the nucleus...it is the same proportion of nothingness as the empty space between the planets...part of the order of things in the universe.

And the purpose for the "things" is for consciousness to dance, to learn, to play. The nature of consciousness...the force of life itself...is that it has to create, it has to experience newness, it has to continue to grow and expand, to learn, and I guess it will probably never stop. At least that's how I see it. What do you think?

Anonymous: What do I think of my question or what you said?

Me: Your question...or your answer to your question. like...why did God create us...form itself?

Rather than sharing his response, which is perhaps too personal, I ask my reader to comment by submitting your answer!

What God created is safe from all corruption, unchanged and perfect in eternity (A Course in Miracles)

That which can be corrupted is not what God created; rather, only what humans have made. A Course in Miracles reveals a clear distinction between making vs. creating—and human beings are capable of both.

That which is made involves no love. Movements, institutions, governments, buildings, laws—all that human beings merely make are errors and, therefore, are entirely unstable and temporary. They are easily corrupted, conquered, destroyed, and then forgotten about.

But that which is created—including the unchangeable laws of the universe and even what humans create in perfect love—this is beyond corruption and is eternal. To create is to infuse spirit into the physical realm; but even this cannot exactly make the physical, material part beyond threat; rather, merely ensures that which is real about it is. Let me give an example.

In 2020, the world has been attacked by the dark forces of ego, which believes it can corrupt and achieve absolute power over each of us, even over the United States of America. All the soldiers of darkness believe there is power in dishonesty, manipulation, force, attack, and in fear. As we have seen all throughout history, brutal attempts to conquer fail badly even when they at first seem to have power.  

What the dark soldiers of ego fail to understand is the insanity of their own thought system—the belief that they are God and that they have power over reality. Reality is the one thing they will never understand. Reality is the love in our hearts, the honest thoughts in our minds, and all that we do and create through the power of this love. Reality is that the soul is beyond threat and will never be captured. Reality is that the truth shall prevail.

A person who knows what love is cannot fear and cannot be conquered. Similarly, a country is invulnerable to the extent that it is originally founded on the principles of God—love, truth, liberty. Because the Constitution of the United States of America, for example, was created with love, it is loved. Because it is loved, it is stronger than the forces of darkness and will endure. In other cultures, traditions are loved, national identities are loved, and all this will prevail for the simple reason that it is loved.
 
The soldiers of darkness can scare some of us into silent complicity for a while, they can seize control over the meaningless elements of society when nobody is paying attention, but when our divine selves remember who we are—when we look upon what they are attempting to make and see it in truth, we will cast it aside without any effort at all. We merely need to speak the truth, and the light returns. This outcome is certain in eternity.

This is the power of love, truth, freedom, life, God, faith—all words pointing to essentially the same thing. The opposite is only error and insanity, which has no lasting power at all. Spiritual understanding is a big deal now and always. Doubt this lesson and you will be tossed about in stress and fear for no reason at all. Understand it, and you have found peace because you understand reality.
